This course provides a comprehensive overview of the Horizon Europe programme. It comes in four separate lectures covering the programme's introduction, legal aspects, financial aspects, and the project life cycle.
We designed this course to help especially newly nominated NCPs understand programme's overall mission and basic rules and signpost them to further sources of information where they can find more details concerning specific areas of their interest.
Understand the journey from call topic, developing a project idea, writing a proposal to submission within the Horizon Europe programme.
Content of this course:
How to develop a project idea: understand the call topic, develop a big project picture and a first “one page idea” of a proposal, how to find project partners
How to write proposals: we will have a look at the overall proposal template, and describe the different subchapters in more detail, adding Do’s and Don’ts wherever possible. We will also discuss the timing – when to start, how long the process of writing takes, etc.
Submission of proposal: we will briefly explain the submission process
Why this course?
A major part of an NCP’s job is to advice on project ideas and proposal writing. It is therefore important to know the basics on proposal writing, and to get some tools in hand how to support applicants (e.g. the idea check through a one page proposal).
The course introduces the basic conditions for participation in HE projects and provides an overview of the different types of participants that may appear in these projects.
There are four 5-8 min video lectures plus a quiz section at the end of each lecture.
The first lecture explains which entities from which countries can participate in HE projects and who can get funding from the EU. It also provides basic information about the rules for consortium composition.
The following part is focused on the characteristics and roles of the coordinator and the other beneficiaries in the consortium and their responsibilities during the project proposal preparation and implementation.
The third part brings a comprehensive overview of all types of third parties that may also be involved in the project (affiliated entities, associated partners, third parties providing in-kind contributions, subcontractors, and financial support to third parties).
The last part covers the administrative aspects of third parties’ participation during the proposal preparation as well as project implementation.
